Scarce I. Sorby 14in Wagon Builders Bit Brace.
This is one of the few examples I've come across of a British wagon builder's brace. It's a massive brace with a 14in sweep and all-steel construction meant for the hardest work. It's made of thick steel rod with an oversized head and steel handle. The chuck is a simple affair with a a tapered square socket and screw-lock to hold virtually any bit with a square shank. It dwarfs American "heavy duty" braces like the Lion and Yankee. See the photo with it along side a standard Millers Falls 10in ratchet brace to get some idea of how big it is. It's in fantastic condition and works perfectly. I just had to try it out in my shop- equipped with a big center bit it's a blast to use.

Millers Falls no. 772 Heavy-Duty Ratchet Bit Brace.
This is nice usable example of one of Millers Falls top-end braces. It's a heavy-duty brace with a ball bearing chuck and pad. It's roughly equivalent to the North Brothers Yankee and PS&W Samson in terms of suitability for hard work. This example comes with the universal hold-all jaws that will grip just about any sort of bit you can fit in the chuck. The ratchet works well in both direction and there's no wear on the jaws. The pad and handle are still tight and accurate. A top quality worker in fine working order.

Well-Made Thicknessing Jig.
This jig is made of mahogany and has a 2in Stanley blade mounted in it. It clearly has some age to it. It's used by pulling the stock through the adjustable aperture between the blade and rest. I've seen these used for basket splits but others have claimed they use these for guitar binding and violin purfling.

Rare 1/8in Center Bead molding Plane by Appleton, Boston.
This plane was made by Thomas Appleton, a planemaker working in and around Boston from about 1868-1890. Appleton was one of the better American planemakers of the late 1800s in my opinion.

The plane is very well-made and in excellent working order. It has a cabinet pitch blade for working difficult wood. The boxing is dead on straight. The blade is quite clean as you see in the photos. It's seen some very light use but has no wear or damage. It's an ideal worker in a very desirable size among woodworkers today.

Very good 3/8in Side Bead Molding Plane.
This plane is clean and free of damage. It'll be a great worker for sure. The blade is clean and the boxing dead straight. It still has a good tight mouth and the blade profile is shaped properly. There's no maker's mark on the front- it was likely removed by a previous owner. I can tell from the design that it's likely American, probably mid-late 1800s. A great worker in a very useful and desirable size for case and cabinet work.

Working Wedge-Arm Plow Plane.
This is a very well-made, perfectly usable wedge-arm plow plane. It has a very faint maker's mark I can't read.. I suspect it's British, probably early 1800s. It has a function depth stop. the fence is completely brass-plated which is a great feature as it makes it impervious to wear. The skates are perfectly inline with each other. The arms lock and unlock easily enough and are easy to set. It's a very simply plane to use and a very effective worker. It comes with one blade- a 3/16in Mardsen bit that fits well. I can fit other blades to this plane for a reasonable price if you'd like. It's a

Big 7/8in British Side Bead molding Plane.
This plane has had many owners over the years, each of whom fought with name stamp and mallet to claim ownership over this tool. it's been well used but remains in good working condition. The boxing is straight and the blade very clean. The maker's mark was long ago stamped over in the Fracar of the Upper Toe ca. 1900-1902. The resultant mess left us with no clear winner, only an illegible maker's mark. A good, usable plane for larger house and architectural moldings. Add your mark to it, if you can find room.

Interesting Birmingham Plane Company Block Plane.
The Birmingham Plane Company operated in what is now Derby, CT. This block plane is the largest of the three sizes they made measuring 7in long and holding a 1 3/4in wide iron. This model was offered with and without a blade adjuster- this example does not have it, nor is the blade prepared to accept an adjuster. It's in fair condition overall and could definitely be used. The lever cap has a pronounced hump where the user's palm rests. As you can imagine these planes are frequently found with cracked caps. This one is intact. the blade is clean and crisp. The sides of the plane flare out a bit and there are small cast nubs to hold which make for a more comfortable and secure grip than other block planes. An interesting plane in solid user condition
